The Different Tiers Of Sales Transition Squad® Conducts
At Transition Squad®, we offer different tiers of auctions and sales based on what each seller client has, how much they have and what level of assistance they need. This helps seller clients choose the package that is right for their needs.
Do-It-Yourself Seller Managed Online Auctions
Every online auction has two parts - 1) the onsite work of setting up lots, photographing them, writing descriptions, setting minimum bids and managing the pickup, and 2) the "back office" work of conducting the auction, marketing and credit card payment collection. This solution is ideal for those that have the time and ability to take their own photos, write basic descriptions and manage the pickup of items that have been won. You need to have at least 20-30 lots to make this type of auction worthwhile.
With our Do It Yourself Seller Managed Online Auctions, we'll provide you with online training and unlimited support along the way at no charge. And we only charge on items we sell. If you can do a garage sale, you can easily run an online auction. So, if you have the time and the ability to do the onsite work, you can save a lot and be guaranteed to make money on the sale of your items.
This tier of service can be done anywhere in North America.
Transition Squad® Fully Managed Online Auctions
This solution is for those that need to sell an entire household of contents quickly, efficiently and for the most the market will bear, but do not have the time, energy or ability to do it themselves. One of our Transition Squad® teams will come to your premises, work with you to decide what is for sale, pull everything out, set up lots, arrange photography, fill out descriptions, set fair market value starting bids, conduct and advertise the auction and manage the pickup. We provide a free phone consultation to go over your needs and help you develop a Transition Action Plan. Upon approval, one of our Project Managers will manage the entire process on your behalf. You don't even have to be there while all this is going on. This tier of service is only available where we have local representatives.
Transition Squad® Partially Managed Online Auctions
With this option, clients will primarily do a Do-It-Yourself Seller Managed Online Auction and can purchase assistance with setup, photography, descriptions, pricing and managing the pickup on an à la carte basis. Since each project is different, we can go over the details during a free phone consultation and provide you an estimate.
Transition Squad® Managed Online Sales
After an auction (or stand-alone), anything not sold can be converted into an online estate sale which is like a regular estate sale, except all online. Items are priced on a Buy Now, fixed price basis. Once someone buys the item, it is theirs. We typically would conduct such a sale until the night before an estate sale or auction pickup.
Transition Squad® Managed Estate Sales
In most downsizing situations, clients' goals are typically to clear out as much as possible first and second to make as much money on their items. Anything that is not purchased online, or items that didn't make it to our online auction or sale can be sold through the estate sale. We conduct an estate sale that is open to the public of all unsold items.
